Taxes

**All international students who were present in the U.S. in 2015 are required to file taxes. This includes students who did not earn U.S. income and scholarships.**

*F-1 students should not use software such as TurboTax, H&R Block, etc. These are for residents. If you use these to file your taxes, you will be filing incorrectly and could be subject to penalties from the IRS as well as jeopardize your legal status*

Taxes are due April 15th, 2016.

Tax Sessions

Students can save a spot for tax sessions by emailing Kamila (xiong875@d.umn.edu). If you do not sign up, you can still attend a session on a walk-in basis depending on how many seats are available.

Sessions and tax software are provided FREE for students.

For students with U.S.-based income or scholarships, the tax session will probably take about 2 hours. Please plan accordingly.

Missing your W-2 or 1042-S?

If you have U.S.-based income or scholarships, you should have received a W-2 and/or a 1042-S (fellowship earnings or regular wages covered under a tax treaty). You cannot complete your taxes without these documents if you have U.S.-based income or scholarships.

If you are employed by UMD:

  • Check to make sure that your "home/permanent address" is listed as your Duluth address. If not, please update your address.
  • W-2 Replacement: Go to the employee self-service website.  Click on “W-2 reprint”.  Select your W-2 form year (2015) and select print or email your W-2.
  • 1042-S Replacement: You must complete the Request for Duplicate 1042-S form and email it to Payroll Services (payroll@umn.edu) in Minneapolis.

If you are employed outside of UMD and have not received these documents yet, you should tell your employer and ask them to help you get a replacement.
